10 Years of the Checklist at the RSM

Join Lifebox at the Royal Society of Medicine to celebrate 10 years of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Surgical Safety Checklist.

The Surgical Safety Checklist is at the heart of Lifebox’s work to make surgery and anaesthesia safer in low-resource settings.  When used correctly, this 19-step communications tool has been proven to reduce the risk of complications and death from unsafe surgery by 40%.

On Monday 21st January, we will be joined by a range of experts in global health, surgery and anaesthesia to discuss the checklist’s history, its role in patient safety and education, and the challenges of the checklist in a range of clinical settings around the world.
